    LDS Script Error: insufficient program headers
    Hi, I am building a project using the GNU / Cygwin tool chain, cross compiled for the MIPS-ELF. My problem involves the linker, ld (really mips-elf-ld). I receive this error message, when I build. mips-elf-ld: project.out: Not enough room for program headers, try linking with -N mips-elf-ld: final link failed: Bad value dmake.exe: Error code 129, while making '\project.out' I modified a sample that I was given, the sample does not for whatever reason have to deal with insufficent headers, so the LDS mapping file does not have anything there that I can use. I am trying on my own to solve the problem, but so far no luck. Further Information: Adding in the line ". = SIZEOF_HEADERS;" as the first line in the SECTIONS block, changes the error message to saying that the linker allocated 3 headers but needs space for 16. What do I have to add to the LDS file to solve the problem? I tried to add a PHDRS block, as the unversal example does not give enough information to tailor it to my needs. The internet example is: PHDRS { headers PT_PHDR PHDRS ; interp PT_INTERP ; text PT_LOAD FILEHDR PHDRS ; data PT_LOAD ; dynamic PT_DYNAMIC ; } Adding this block makes the problem worse or at the least does not solve the problem. I tried adding in various things to this block, after adding it, but got nowhere. Is there some way to just state that number, since I now know that I need 16 headers. I did research and know that one header is 32-bytes. Thanks in advance, Sarah

    Hi,

    I am building a project using the GNU / Cygwin tool chain, cross compiled for the MIPS-ELF.

    My problem involves the linker, ld (really mips-elf-ld). I receive this error
    message, when I build.

    mips-elf-ld:
    project.out: Not enough room for program headers, try linking with -N
    mips-elf-ld: final link failed: Bad value
    dmake.exe: Error code 129, while making '\project.out'

    I modified a sample that I was given, the sample does not for whatever reason have to deal with
    insufficent headers, so the LDS mapping file does not have anything
    there that I can use. I am trying on my own to solve the problem, but
    so far no luck.

    Further Information: Adding in the line ". = SIZEOF_HEADERS;" as the
    first line in the SECTIONS block, changes the error message to saying
    that the linker allocated 3 headers but needs space for 16. What do I
    have to add to the LDS file to solve the problem?

    I tried to add a PHDRS block, as the unversal example does
    not give enough information to tailor it to my needs. The internet example is:

    PHDRS
    {
    headers PT_PHDR PHDRS ;
    interp PT_INTERP ;
    text PT_LOAD FILEHDR PHDRS ;
    data PT_LOAD ;
    dynamic PT_DYNAMIC ;
    }

    Adding this block makes the problem worse or at the least does not
    solve the problem. I tried adding in various things to this block,
    after adding it, but got nowhere.

    Is there some way to just state that number, since I now know that I
    need 16 headers. I did research and know that one header is 32-bytes.

    Thanks in advance,

    Sarah
